The 6th IEEE International Conference on Predictive Control of Electrical Drives and Power Electronics (IEEE-PRECEDE) was held in Jinan, Shandong province from Nov 20 to 22.
The conference was hosted by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and organized by Shandong University, Technische Universität München, Harbin Institute of Technology and the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
More than 400 leading experts and scholars from scientific research institutions or enterprises in 32 countries carried out discussions on the latest engineering academic progresses and hot topics in the fields of power electronics, drive systems and predictive control of new energy generation.
Li Shucai, vice-president of SDU,delivered a speech about SDU's history and its contribution to the electric power energy field. Ralph Kennel, chairman of IEEE, introduced the history of the PRECEDE conference and highlighted the report Why is Predictive Control So Special and What Can We Expect from It in Future？ to point out the development trends of predictive control in terms of power converter, electric drive system, new energy generation.
Many scholars also presented their latest research achievements at the sub-forum of the conference.
During the conference, awards for best paper, best conference report, and best poster were given out.
The IEEE's international conference, serving as the first high-level international conference dedicated to the application of predictive control in the fields of electrical engineering and energy systems, is held every two years.
As this year marks the 10th anniversary of the establishment of PRECEDE, the format of the conference was changed from a symposium to an international conference for the first time. The event also featured lectures and conference reports.
